“ Low T Syndrome: Male Menopause”
Advertisers are busily trying to convince males that they are suffering from so-called “low T syndrome.” “Andropause” is now euphemistically being called male menopause or low T syndrome. Studies have shown that after the age of 30 years, males naturally have a decline in testosterone levels. However, that does not mean that all males should receive hormone replacement therapy or take testosterone supplements, as suggested by wide scale prime time commercials. Some say this is just part of the normal aging process. Still, testosterone can be a friend or a foe, dependent upon its levels and the health condition of the recipient. Some studies show that only 25% of males ever experience symptoms of depression, erectile dysfunction (ED), loss of libido, lethargy, sleep disturbances or bone loss and fractures.
